COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Coopers Sparkling Ale is brewed naturally by the centuries-old top fermentation method just as it was in the beginning by Thomas Cooper. This beer displays a solid head and a distinctive, full-bodied flavour enhanced by a soft, fruity character and the sediment which gives it a cloudy appearance.

hazy red color...not bad looking, weak head though. This beer definitely had some yeastie to it. Decent taste, crisp, not a lot of punch, maybe a good session beer.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 23, 2002
Pale, cloudy, average head. Not much aroma registered. Slightly fruity but weak taste. Somewhat undesirably malty finish.

JMerritt (1786) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2002
Huge white head (and I mean huge) with rather fast disipation. Amber in color and VERY cloudy. Lots of little wheat-colored and brown floaties. A very refreshing, smooth flavor. I didn’t finish the last swallow of the pint; the big brown floaties looked like coffee grounds and kinda grossed me out. But this beer was definitely good.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2002
It really is sparkling. Spicy hop aroma. I poured gently, so the yeast stayed in the bottle. A good level of carbonation. Very fruity on the palate. Balanced hops. Tasty.

Cloudy bottle conditioned beer, fruity aroma, good body, nice finish. Good beer and easy to get.

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2002
Amber coloured and really cloudy. Pear aroma. Nicely malty, fruity with sparkling mouthfeel. A great, unusual, complex but still refreshing ale.

pilsnerrogge (2485) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2002
Very fruity and full-bodied, but the yeast at the bottom of the bottle tasted really, really bad.

Nice, but nothing special here. Save your money and buy something else.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 28, 2002
Amber, cloudy, wheaty aroma, an odd taste for an ale-quite wheaty and a little sharp, fairly complex flavor, oddly this is NOT a wheat beer-it just tastes a lot like one, a lot of yeasty sediment can be found at the bottom of the bottle, bottle-conditioned and top-fermented just like the belgian ales: this is a quality brew!, this one slightly edges out the other Coopers brews.
